GMVision takes over GMIndie

I wondered why GMVision, creators of a Game Maker video show and previously the GMLive Game Maker radio, had collaborated with the over-ambitious GMIndie to run the recent poorly implemented Game Maker Survey. Things obviously ran a little deeper than I thought as it appears that GMVision has now taken over complete control of GMIndie. Looking back our very brief write-up of the last GMLive show, broadcast in February this year, mentions that the next show Read more…


GMIndie and GMVision Game Maker Survey: Poorly Implemented

GMIndie and GMVision have launched ‘Game Maker Survey 2010’ a collection of 60 questions designed to ask about your usage of Game Maker and collect opinions on various aspects of Game Maker.

GMVision and GMGRS merge

GMVision (episode 2) is to merge with the Game Maker Game Review Show (episode 3). The idea behind the move is that it will enable GMVision to produce shorter, more regular, ‘minisodes’ alongside their existing longer episodes. Rival show GMTV (episode 6) released a series of short one topic shows in April and May this year after their split from GMKing but the schedule was quickly abandoned after just two weeks.


GMVision’s The Game Maker Show: Episode 2

GMVision have put their second Game Maker video show online (watch it below). Apparently Joshua is suffering from a transparency condition which as we all should know is caused by licking the yogurt from the foil tops of opened pots (Theme Hospital anyone?) Missed the launch of GMVision? Watch the first episode and read 31 comments about it. The show begins with an long and fancy introduction sequence during which a Game Maker logo is Read more…
